regarding egypt. >> reporter: so far the obama administration is not calling out mohamed morsi directly. president obama spoke to mohamed morsi on wednesday to thank him for his personal leadership and handling the cease-fire and days later the state department said in a statement, the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and individual rights and the rule of law, consistent with egypt's international commitment. it goes on to say, quote, we call for all egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues, piece fully, and, through democratic dialogue. but, no mention, harris, of mohamed morsi by name. >> harris: molly henneberg, thanks, molly. we move on to hollywood and the world. actor larry hagman was so good at being bad. he has passed away, and people are laying flowers at his star at the hollywood walk of fame. he died yesterday in dallas, again working as the character that maids him famous the world over, best known for his role as is the s
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
she and the obama administration misled the american public about the deadly attack on americans in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's b
. the obama administration has said, you know what? let people settle this for themselves and instead the u.s. might way, we'll help you and control those ports to make sure weapons aren't being smuggled in. we will play a more aggressive role. that is the challenge for the obama administration, in the second term. whereas the first term i think they wanted a light footprint. >> chris: then there is benghazi. the president and -- let's talk about one aspect of this. we talked about the investigation for a long time. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some, it is report, as soon as this week, and, one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight, and name susan rice to be secretary of state, bill, and if he were to do so do you think the senate will confirm her? >> president obama hasn't confided in me, who the secretary of state appointment is, i know that is a shock, i rather think he'll appoint her and i think, i'm not a huge fan of hers but i thi
? as you may well know, the obama administration is trying to get all of those people who voted for the president to come on board and say this is what we want and to press congress to make a deal but it is sort of hard to figure out what is fair. >> exactly. i said to my staff last week we need a big charge that shows the options and how much money is delivered or caused by each step we might take. i think for the most americans they have to know that no matter what we do, taxes are not going to go up on 98%, those people making less than $250,000 a year. where we go above that, i think our side is very, very necessity gloeshable. if there is a number that makes more sense, a half a million dollars to raise the marginal rate, a million dollars, we can look at that and we would be willing to do that and so far the republicans have not been willing to budget one inch on rates and again this is all a matter of semantics. it is not dollars so they ought to be willing to put everything on the table on the revenue side. >> what they might say is and let me get your answer. you said w
. happening now, new troubles for some top members of the obama administration. more republicans senators say they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, liby

, the u.s. economy would suffer big time. the obama administration's economists estimate consumers would spend about $200 billion less next year than they would have otherwise. congress and the administration have only a few more weeks to nail down a deal. but that deal will have to address some tough issues, including entitlement reform. darren gersh explains. >> reporter: the big money in entitlements is in health care, and that means any grand bargain to avoid the fiscal cliff will slice away aone of the nation's most popular programs. >> medicare is clearly in the gunsights. >> reporter: it's possible congress and the president could agree to save $300 to $400 billion from medicare by cutting fees for doctors and hospitals. but analysts worry slashing payments won't make the health care system more efficient. >> this is not really a way to structurally change medicare and if you don't change the underlying incentives, you don't get long-term savings. >> reporter: progressives at the center for american progress say the government could save close to $150 billion by squeezing the pric
american notes than the previous egyptian dictatorship. that is a real problem for the obama administration. i don't know how you can go any other way. they have not been critical of a country where a guy is a member of the a cultish theo kratic multi fascist organization that has power ore his country. they refuse to be critical because he helped with a temporary cease fire and a fight between hamas and israel. >> morsi had plans for a protest in the square. >>> actor angus p. jones doesn't want to be on 2 and a half men any more. the 19-year-old star trashed the show in new video. >> if you watch 2 and a half men please stop watching two and a half men. i am on two and a half men i don't want to be on it. please stop watching it. please stop filling your head with filth. >> i am not okay with what i am learning what the bible says and being on that television show. >> jones says he turned to religion after a battle with drugs. >> boy meets world stars ben savage and daniel signed on to join the sequel to the hit 90s sitcom. the new show will be called girl meets world and revolves around
's diplomatic feat helps restore a record tarnished by questions over how the obama administration handled the attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi. will the cease-fire hold? hillary clinton, whose husband, president bill clinton, tried but failed to broker a peace agreement between israelis and palestinians knows only too well how tenuous true peace can be. >> after that will trip which turned out, by the way, to be 11 days on the road all the way over to australia, then back through asia and then to the middle east and then home, secretary clinton is back here in washington. she's here for thanksgiving, and so far, as we've been reporting, that cease-fire appears to be holding. fred. >> all right. in the meantime, hillary clinton has made it very clear that she would likely leave this position at the end of her term. topping the list of those that might be nominated would be s s susan rice. she's been speaking for the first time in response to so much criticism that she has received on how she handled that attack in benghazi, libya. what more can you tell us about what she is saying a

responsible for brokering the deal. i give actually the obama administration a lot more of the responsibility. i wouldn't call it credit for pressuring both israel and the egypt to get hamas to agree to the cease-fire. it is a very limited cease-fire. it won't last. it doesn't change the strategic environment and it clearly gave morsi the view that he would have a free hand domesticly to do what he has just done. melissa: i don't want to let you go without asking you i was struck by pictures exhuming yasser arafat questioning what he did of. what do you think of that? >> i don't think he died of polonium poisoning. only people that used that is soviets. i don't think they killed arafat. i think this is way pinning his death on somebody else. as happens in that part of the world it is not their responsibility but somebody else's. melissa: why now? >> an issue kicking around for quite some time i think circumstances led to it being this time. i don't attribute to any grander plan. i don't think it will fundamentally change the circumstance there is. melissa: ambassador, thanks for coming on. we
administration has failed to respond to at least a dozen congressional letters adding that the obama white house was keen on the obama raid and should offer the same transparency on benghazi. unfair to the american people and the families of the victims of the benghazi attack to not provide the same level of defailed facts in an accounting for what i consider a major national security failure. on thursday last week, a classified section. fox news told that james clapper hid of the u.s. intelligence community was definite. his team did not make controversial changes to the talking points used by ambassador susan rice. critics say the changes like taking out the word at divide played down the terrorism angle. on tuesday this week in a total reversal. clapper's office says they were responsible for the changes. >> i think clapper has to say and has to say publicly whether he advocated the youtube video theory, whether he pressed it on the white house and others in the intelligence community, and, if so, did he do that at the direction of the white house? >> democrats accused the republicans of poli

it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi

of discussion about how a second term obama administration could behave and how that would open it up for israel to feel like they needed to strike quickly right after the election. so i think that that is probably part of what it is. the other thing is that the israelis have a track record when they find someone they are looking for, they take them out. melissa: where do we go from here? it seems like it has taken the whole thing up a notch. >> and hats. it has gone up several notches. i wasn't too concerned about it, but i figured this would be a classic flare up. over the course of the day, it got more significant, larger rockets and used in the past, the first time in 20 years, air raid sirens were heard in a major city having to take shelter. this is different than the usual rockets. those are unguided, they are fairly small. now you are talking about serious weaponry and it will strike back hard against that. >> it looks like some corner has been turned towards the more violent. how does this affect our security. why should we be focused on this? >> the first thing is that people tend not
, the obama administration is preparing to request more money. the white house is expected to ask congress for billions of dollars in additional aid in the wake of the storm. congressional officials say the request could top $11 billion. and could come in the next few days. the storm caused more than $70 billion in damage both in new york and new jersey. some say the second costliest u.s. disaster ever. >>> and that jersey shore roller coaster that was swept off the pier and into the ocean by the storm is going to be removed after all. the mayor of seaside heights say as what remains of that still partially submerged roller coaster would make great tourist attraction, but as he now puts it, that was not the brightest comment. >>> recovery efforts here in new york are getting a shot in the arm today thanks to firefighters from new orleans. they flew out yesterday and are starting to help their counterparts from the fdny today calling the two-week effort "big easy to the big apple." it's all payback from the aftermath of hurricane katrina when firefighters went in the opposite direction. >>>
about what's going on with the obama administration, and that doesn't sound like a positive secretary of state to him because they need to show their ability to be independent. but, again, senator corker's office now saying they believe they have a private meeting with ambassador rice. >>> it's often lost in politics of the fiscal cliff is how a cliff dive will actually impact your personal finances. and whether you have a job or not if you pay taxes, you're going to take a hit. first place you're going to see it, the federal tax rate for a middle income family. and that means an extra $2,000 out of pocket. next is the payroll tax. if you make, say, $50,000 a year, that's another $1,000 that you're going to fork over to uncle sam. then there is the alternative minimum tax, 27 million will be hit with this for the first time ever. and it's a separate calculation from the regular tax, the average cost, $3,700 a year. then there's the spending cuts, pre-cliff, if you're unemployed, you get 99 weeks of benefits, post cliff, 26 weeks. and home interest perks, bye-bye, those could all be go
less petroleum because of what the obama administration has done to raise those standards. for every time we double the mileage requirement for cars, we are eliminating a significant amount of co2 that goes into the atmosphere. that's something government did, did it, you know, in a forthright fashion, and it is making a difference. >> okay. government put a man on the moon. government is not essentially incompetent. that's ridiculous argument. when we start taking steamship rides across the polar cap, i think you should admit something is going on a little different than, as you put it, weather changes. there ain't going to be a north pole anymore. where is santa claus going to live? anyway, ed rendell, thank you, governor, and thank you, matt for putting up with the truth, at least for ten minutes. >> more on the republican civil war. a crush rush. the sensible voices in the republican party are letting old rushbo in on a secret. it's not your grandfather's rural, white, conservative america anymore. >>> plus, cementing our legacy. hillary clinton lands in israel. she's there to br
. >>> federal reserve chairman ben bernanke is pushing congress and the obama administration to reach an agreement of tax increases and spending cuts in the so-called fiscal cliff. without a deal the fiscal cliff could trigger a recession next year and congress must act by january 1st in order to avoid that automatic tax increase and spending cuts. >>> time is 6:15. a new stumbling block for hillary clinton's chances to reach a middle east cease fire. a bus explosion in tel aviv. alison burns is live in our washington, d.c. newsroom. alison. >> reporter: dave, we received a statement from the white house within the past hour calling the attack on innocent civilians outrageous. israelis say it was a terrorist attack the bus bombing in tel aviv hurt at least 18 people. three seriously. hamas praised the attack but did not claim responsibility. secretary of state hillary clinton who is in egypt at this hour also issued a statement saying the u.s. strongly condemns the attack and ready to provide any assistance that israel requires. secretary clinton is is calling for a truth and longer t
wants. so, as far as emphasis around the world, that's something that's coming from the obama administration. and look, the middle east is an area that obviously has been a problem i would say for decades but really for centuries, maybe my len yeah. so that there are periods of more focus or less focus, you know, is not that surprising. i think the white house wanted to give an opportunity for direct bilateral talks between the two sides and israel or in that region. and obviously, they have not always worked as well as one would like it to happen. >> jonathan, we heard stories today of hillary clinton and president obama sharing a plane ride and sort of reminiscing about the past four years and talking back about campaign times and really is amazing how much has changed and how far they have come in four short years. >> absolutely. you know, just four years ago these guys were or this man and this woman at each other's throats politically. some of the aides hated each other. you would not have necessarily expected to see this coming together but, you know, really started on t
long distance. >>> the cease-fire is seen as a major foreign policy victory for the obama administration. the president was heavily involved to making calls to egypt and israel. mahmoud abbas even took middle of the night phone calls and he dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton to close the cease-fire deal, which she did with shuttle diplomacy between the west bank and cairo. joining me is republican strategist boris epstein. richard, i'll begin with you, richard graham has been a hard critic of president obama. they are now hailing the cease-fire deal. they released a statement yesterday praising prime minister benjamin netanyahu for reaching the truce. however, did you notice no mention of president obama or secretary clinton? what do you make of that? >> honestly, that statement was sad and pathetic they cannot take off the partisan blinders at a time like this. and i think what it does is it hurts their credibility going forward in the international stage. they were ones very much on susan rice's back about benghazi and the possibility of her being secretary of
is that the obama administration did an excellent job of supporting israel all through this. made israel feel moderate and the arabs feel realistic. the second piece of good news is that egypt, even under the muslim brotherhood, has an interest in having stability. that's very important. the bad news is the islamists are in control. in the palestinian areas with hamas and certainly in control in egypt. and there's going to be no peace as long as they are there in control, and u.s. policy has got to be a long, gradual process of trying to build up the non-islamists in the arab world, including in iran, across the region. >> that frames it. we'll hear more from you in the roundtable. >>> now let me turn to carl levin, chairman of course of the armed services committee in the senate. senator, to egypt. how concerned are you? is morsi a partner of the united states, or a problem? >> yes. >> he's both? >> some of both, yeah. but even though there's great concern, i think we have to be very cautious. we don't obviously want to see a democratically elected autocrat take the place of an undemocratica
